A Sample Philosophy Paper

Angela Mendelovici, Working Knowledge | Harvard Business School, Feb 11, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Sample philosophy paper with all the major elements presented and explained. It's a short four-page paper, but for the longer papers authors typically repeat the same process. I wish the author had chosen a less user-histile format to present the paper than Prezi. But I really like the content, especially the idea that "even though I will argue against it, I try to make it sound as plausible as possible." So many people miss the point of argumentation, which is not to 'win' by whatever subterfuge necessary, but to engage with the strongest form of the position possible, and let reason and evidence carry the day.
